Been to a few concerts here now, a nice experience with super surroundings, £20 for two glasses or wine is a bit disproportionate to the entrance fee though, all in all a nice night, now where was Five Guys for that Burger!

We visit most years and Christmas is special with festive food and delicious mince pies. The profits go to support the most worthy causes - homelessness and refugees. And the food is lovely too!

Dear Preston88, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of St Martin's. It's always lovely to hear everyone's experiences and journeys to the church. The church was build in 1700s during the neo-classical era, so you're right in saying that it is...More

This has to come in two parts: 1. The cafe/restaurant is underneath the church, in the crypt. It serves inexpensive (for London) food including soups and sandwiches, as well as more ambitious main courses. Beer, wine and free water are all available. I'd say the...More

The crypt houses a quality cafeteria style place which is very affordable and serves excellent comfort food. Gift shop as well downstairs. Rent a seat cushion for a pound before going upstairs to view excellent chamber music and choir groups.

No seating plan as far as I saw: first come, first served. So I agree with David F. Note that the voluntary donation is best given at the end of the concert on the way out - not at the beginning otherwise you can get a... More
